spearing

4 posts in this topic

Anyone doing anything good on spearing in the area? Slow on my end, just looking for a few stories, not spots. Lots of lakes dirty due to the 60 mph winds right before freeze up.

A good friend of mine has a spearhouse out on a Buffalo area lake and his report is very slow. I was maybe going to try to get out this week with him one day and check it out.

I heard the Little Waverly has produced quite a few northerns. However usaully the northerns ar between the 3 and 6 puond range but often a limit is possible. for bigger northerns cross the road and try on BW by the channel about 4 spear houses out their so far.

Looking for fast easy spearing try pulaski. The northerns are not very big, 2 or 3 lbs, But lots of them. I'm thinking of spearing there, water is clearer than buffalo, can see in down to 11 ft. Those smaller pike are tasty, can be used up quick, I enjoy pickled, smoked, as well as cooking them, also can be used in chowders.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
